A MAGICAL AND AMAZING SOUTH AFRICAN TRIP

"Every place we stayed was perfect for us, and more amazing than the last, and because I trust that Phil shares my values with respect to protecting people, animals, and the environment from exploitation, I knew that we would be also staying in places with those same ethics." - Kim

Ethos

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.

Travelling to Southern Africa is truly a return to the source of humankind, to Where It All Began.
